+ - Sen. Bond disses Internet "kill switch" bill->

Submitted by GovTechGuy
GovTechGuy writes: Sen. Kit Bond has introduced his own cybersecurity legislation with Sen. Orrin Hatch and he had some harsh words for a competing bill sponsored by the Senate Committee on Homeland Security. Bond said that bill, which has been criticized for allegedly giving the president a "kill switch" over the Internet, burdens the private sector with mandates and puts too much on the plate of the already overburdened Department of Homeland Security. His bill would create a new position in the Pentagon that reports directly to the President in charge of coordinating all civilian cybersecurity. Any private sector involvement would be voluntary and free from legal challenge, rather than mandated.
